Description From 2007-12-31 08:14:52 PST
I'm currently implementing Adium-Messagestyles to a messenging application using pywebkitgtk, but I don't see any easy way to add new messages to the WebView without rerendering the whole HTML. I'd like to see some DOM-Functions that make it possible to use code similiar to Kopete's (another Chat-Application supporting Adium-Messagestyles, using KHTML).
Here's a code-snippet from Kopete that pretty much describes what I'd like to have: http://pastebin.ca/839983

The OS X version of WebKit has a DOM API written in Objective-C that's generated from *.idl files.  A generator for a C or C++ API would be one approach.

i'm covering events as well.  it's not ideal: it's done using
javascript snippets right now.

I think this can safely be marked as a duplicate.
